Post Of­fice makeover

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen MP Mar­garet Ferrier has wel­comed plans put for­ward by the Post Of­fice to mod­ernise the Gil­bert­field branch.

Longer open­ing hours and a to­tal re­fur­bish­ment of the ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties are just two of the changes pro­posed for this Au­tumn.

The changes are part of a pro­gramme of in­vest­ment and trans­for­ma­tion tak­ing place across the Post Of­fice net­work, help­ing to make the branches more mod­ern and con­ve­nient for cus­tomers.

Ms Ferrier said: “These plans are a welcome an­nounce­ment for the Half­way area. This in­vest­ment is a sure sign that Post Of­fice ser­vices in the area are se­cure for the fore­see­able fu­ture.

“It is im­por­tant that vi­tal ser­vices like this re­main ac­ces­si­ble. These pro­pos­als will en­sure that res­i­dents and busi­nesses in the Half­way area re­tain a vi­tal lo­cal ser­vice.

“I would en­cour­age all of my con­stituents in the area to con­trib­ute to the pro­pos­als by sub­mit­ting their com­ments to the Post Of­fice Views ser­vice be­fore 11 Septem­ber.
